|NASA Research Announcement
- Elucidation of the cellular mechanisms of the host and pathogens by which changes in microbial virulence are affected, and the potential effects that changed virulences may have upon a host during flight (ground studies and flight studies).
- An assessment, using microorganisms or microorganisms with host surrogate models, to determine changes in microbial responses to spaceflight/spaceflight analogue environments that would indicate alterations in the risk of infectious disease during spaceflight missions.
This task would also support gaps AEH 8; AEH 9; AEH 10.
